Running XP Pro. On ABC.com you can supposedly watch episodes of their already broadcast shows. However, it requires the add-on Move Media Player. It errors out on me in Firefox. Any ideas? BTW, it doesn't work in IE either, not that it matters :)

I was able to use Move Media Player as a FF addon after enabling pop-ups.

From http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/faq

Audio/Video Playback Troubleshooting
Nothing happens when I click on the "Launch" button from the landing page. How do I view the full episode player?
The player is displayed in its own pop-up window. Your computer's pop-up blocker may be preventing the window from launching. Hold down the control button when clicking on the "Launch" button. That may allow a pop-up to be launched. If that doesn't work, please consult the instructions for the pop-up blocker you have installed.

Hmm, I get the popup window for the commercial that runs before the program just fine, but when the program starts to load I get errored out. I wonder if this is a cache thing? I have it set at 25meg...

Try going to www.espn.go.com and watching some of their content in Firefox. Hopefully you'll get a prompt for the Move media player.
